UCL: BARCELONA PROGRESS TO THE QUARTER-FINALS BY CREATING HISTORY

Barcelona became the first team to overturn a 4-0 first leg deficit in Champions League history as they thrashed Paris St-Germain 6-1 at home to progress into the quarter-finals of the competition.

The Spanish champions were 5-3 down on aggregate in the 88th minute, but scored three goals in the final seven minutes in one of the greatest European ties of all time.

Neymar’s free-kick and penalty followed by Sergi Roberto’s 95th-minute winner sealed victory on an incredible night at the Nou Camp.

Barcelona had led 2-0 at the break courtesy of Luis Suarez’s header after just three minutes and Layvin Kurzawa’s own goal.

And they added another shortly after half-time when Neymar fell over Thomas Meunier in the box and Lionel Messi converted the penalty.

Edinson Cavani lashed home for PSG on 61 minutes and the quarter-finals looked beyond Barca, but it wasn’t enough to survive Barca’s late onslaught.
